Depending on the game it performs like the 5850 or 5870. When overclocked though it can just about match the 480. Its not a great
buy at $380... but at $330 it definitely is.
I think if I had a little bit more money coming in and I knew my PSU and case could handle it, I would have gone with a 480 since they get an INSANE performance boost from overclocking... but for now, I think the 470 is just a better choice for me.
I don't even have an 8 pin PCI-E power connector so the likelihood of being able to really push a GTX 480 is pretty low.
